Description

Jan Beulich discovered the Xen virtual machine subsystem of the Linux kernel did not properly restrict access to PCI command registers. A local guest user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (host crash). (CVE-2015-2150)

A privilege escalation was discovered in the fork syscall via the int80 entry on 64 bit kernels with 32 bit emulation support. An unprivileged local attacker could exploit this flaw to increase their privileges on the system. (CVE-2015-2830)

A memory corruption issue was discovered in AES decryption when using the Intel AES-NI accelerated code path. A remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash) or potentially escalate privileges on Intel base machines with AEC-GCM mode IPSec security association. (CVE-2015-3331)

Wen Xu discovered a use-after-free flaw in the Linux kernel’s ipv4 ping support. A local user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash) or gain administrative privileges on the system. (CVE-2015-3636)

Carl H Lunde discovered missing sanity checks in the Linux kernel’s UDF file system (CONFIG_UDF_FS). A local attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash) by using a corrupted file system image. (CVE-2015-4167)
